BACKGROUND Several neurological disorders have been described in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients, but their exact frequency is unknown. METHODS We prospectively studied the prevalence of neurological disorders (especially peripheral neuropathy) in a group of 82 patients with Crohn's disease (CD, n = 31) or ulcerative colitis (UC, n = 51) from 2(More)
We evaluated the effects of vincristine on the gastrointestinal (GI) motility of awake rats and correlated them with the course of vincristine-induced peripheral neuropathy. Vincristine or saline was injected into the tail vein of male Wistar rats (180-250 g) on alternate days: 50 microg/kg (5 doses, N = 10), 100 microg/kg (2, 3, 4 and 5 doses, N = 49) or(More)
BACKGROUND Several neurological diseases, especially different types of peripheral neuropathy (PN) are common in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). METHODS We prospectively evaluated the presence of PN in 121 patients with IBD (51 with Crohn's disease [CD] and 70 with ulcerative colitis [UC]) and 50 controls (gastritis and dyspepsia) over 3.5 years.
